Republicans led by white nationalists in the White House [Trump, Miller] doomed Puerto Rico. Republicans purposefully manufactured a minimal response. 4600 people died.
“As hurricane season begins this week, experts are still trying to count the number of deaths caused by last year’s devastating Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. The latest estimate: roughly 4,600, many of them from delayed medical care.
Residents of Puerto Rico died at a significantly higher rate during the three months following the hurricane than they did in the previous year, according to the results of a new study by a group of independent researchers from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and other institutions.”
Puerto Rico deserves better.
